Fractured Rib, Back to haunt ?
About five months ago I suffered a fractured rib whilst playing football. My doctor who is useless at the best of times diagnosed a fractured rib and ordered me to rest for 6 weeks, which I did. (No x-ray was taken but the deformation of the rib was clearly visible through the skin).
The fracture seemed to heal fine.
However five months on and I’ve started getting pain again, at the fracture point, the back of the rib cage and also sharp shooting pains at the side.
My doctor wont send me for an x-ray and insists there is nothing more he can do.
Can anybody suggest why I might be getting this trouble so long fter the initial injury and what should I do a about it ?
